I take my christmas decorating very seriously. It is a tradition that I have created for myself and my family and I look forward to it year after year. My oldest daughter has inherited my love of christmas decorating and this year we are starting a hope chest of sorts for her own holiday decorations.
Every year since my children were born my husband’s family has traveled to our house to share the holiday with us. As we have moved around the past few years the Spence christmas celebration has traveled from Virginia to New Jersey to Ohio and now back to Virginia. In spite of 4 moves in 5 years my collection of all things christmas has grown and grown.
So I start my annual ritual of decorating every room in the house. I think my tree count is up to nine, that is not counting the gumball tree that we make for the inside of the fridge. Always puts a smile on everyones face to open the fridge and find a tree in there too! Call me crazy, but I love all the tinsel and glitter, the kitsch and the elegant. Pretty much never met a decorated christmas tree that I didn’t like. As I get the decorations going I will share them all here in my blog.
Here are most of the boxes that came out of the attic today. Let the decorating begin!
